female gazing at: Will Yun Lee

10 June 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I was about to write that Will Yun Lee is blink-and-you-miss him in San Andreas, but that’s actually not true. How could you miss this man?

(Spoilerish question re San Andreas and Lee: Is “the Asian guy is the first to die” the new “the black guy is the first to die”?)

Lee is in Spy, too, but it’s another too-brief appearance. (Apparently he’s in True Blood? Guess I’m gonna have to check that out.) Here he is all badass in The Wolverine:

I’m always a sucker for eyeglasses on a cute guy:

Crisp white shirt (why that’s hot):

(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo. But check to see whom we’ve already gazed at.) »

Do audiences want quality movies? L.A. Earthquake Flick to Pass Domestic $100M Mark Today

8 June 2015 7:24 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'San Andreas' movie with Dwayne Johnson. 'San Andreas' movie box office: $100 million domestic milestone today As the old saying (sort of) goes: If you build it, they will come. Warner Bros. built a gigantic video game, called it San Andreas, and They have come to check out Dwayne Johnson perform miraculous deeds not seen since ... George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, released two weeks earlier. Embraced by moviegoers, hungry for quality, original storylines and well-delineated characters – and with the assistance of 3D surcharges – the San Andreas movie debuted with $54.58 million from 3,777 theaters on its first weekend out (May 29-31) in North America. Down a perfectly acceptable 52 percent on its second weekend (June 5-7), the special effects-laden actioner collected an extra $25.83 million, trailing only the Melissa McCarthy-Jason Statham comedy Spy, (with $29.08 million) as found at Box Office Mojo.* And that's how this original movie – it's not officially a remake, »

Five "Must-See" Movies for June 2015

2 June 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I hate to admit it, but it's true: I failed you guys last month. I don't say that because I ultimately recommended you check out a couple of stinkers in May's monthly movie preview (we'll get to that in a moment), but rather because, of the five movies I mentioned as "must-sees", I actually only saw two of them. I led last month's post with the caveat that there wasn't much of note coming out during May, but still, if I'm gonna recommend movies I should probably watch 'em too, and I vow to do so from now on. Unless I change my mind. Or run out of money. Or everyone else tells me they're bad and that I should run for the hills and avoid them forever. Point is, I'll try. Not to make excuses, but I did have a lot going on last month. I finished grad school, »

Movie Review – San Andreas (2015)

2 June 2015 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

San Andreas, 2015.

Directed by Brad Peyton.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Colton Haynes, Matt Gerald, Will Yun Lee and Kylie Minogue.

Synopsis:

In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his daughter.

If I made a compliment like “they don’t make ‘em like this much anymore” about San Andreas I’d forgive you for thinking I’d gone mad but only if you hadn’t seen the film. Anyone who sees the movie is guaranteed at least one of two things; the most fun you’ll have had for the price of your ticket in 2015 so far, and just maybe you’ll agree just where I’m coming from with my unapologetic glee.

Make no mistake, San Andreas offers nothing new to the disaster movie genre, »

San Andreas opens to $113 million worldwide

1 June 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

San Andreas has certainly been no disaster at the box office, having opened to an impressive $113 million worldwide.

The blockbuster movie, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, opened in 60 markets around the globe and shot to the number one position domestically with $53.1 million (knocking Tomorrowland from the top spot) and added another $60 million from its international screenings. This is the biggest non-Fast and Furious or G.I. Joe opening for Dwayne Johnson, who many thought wasn’t able to helm a money making movie after the failure of Hercules last year.

San Andreas‘ $53.1 million is also way ahead of its predicted take of $40 million.

Film Review: ‘San Andreas’ Loads Its Story with Too Many Faults

30 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The best way, perhaps the only way, to enjoy the disaster movie “San Andreas” is to check your brain at the door, or better yet leave it at home for safekeeping. Bringing new meaning to the term mindless entertainment, “San Andreas” dares its audience to turn off their minds, and enjoy the ride.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a helicopter pilot and military vet conducting search and rescues in Los Angeles. He’s also a soon to be divorced dad suffering with a sense of loss over a deceased daughter he couldn’t save. Meanwhile, estranged wife Emma (Carla Gugino) has moved in with an insanely rich new boyfriend Daniel (Ioan Gruffudd), just as their daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) is heading off to school. And just as his world seems to be crumbling around him, cue the earthquake that sends the world (at least L.A. and San Francisco) crumbling around him. »

San Andreas before the special effects

30 May 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is currently battling the largest earthquake the world has ever seen in director Brad Peyton’s disaster flick San Andreas, and the folks at Sploid have put together a neat little video comparing the film before and after the addition of visual effects. Check it out below…

Film Review: Terribly Scripted ‘San Andreas’ With Dwayne Johnson a Heartless Special Effects Spectacle

29 May 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When the story is as weak as the film’s fault lines and the character development never develops, the problem with blowing $100 million mostly on special effects is all you’re left with is unintelligent disaster porn.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Aside from the visual spectacle, “San Andreas” fails fantastically to be anything remotely smart. It’s not even a show piece for Dwayne Johnson’s attempt at rebranding himself into a legitimate, dramatic actor. And very little about it is surprising, new or anything most of us couldn’t write in our sleep.

While “San Andreas” is trying to engage our sense of survival, it doesn’t play to an everyday fear that most of us ever experience. At least “Deep Impact,” “Armageddon” and the like had stories that I can actually remember. This one will soon be forgotten.

I actually started to count the amount of cheesy one-liners that caused »

Movie Review – San Andreas (2015)

San Andreas. 2015

Directed by Brad Peyton

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Ian Gruffud, Archie Panjabi, Colton Haynes, Matt Gerald, Will Yun Lee and Kylie Minogue

Synopsis:

In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.

Disaster movies are long gone past their expiration date, but maybe, just maybe you can spark some interest by pairing up Dwayne Johnson and an earthquake. More specifically, an earthquake so devastating it literally cracks the earth in half. Yes, that sounds totally asinine, which is probably why the line delivered by Paul Giamatti didn’t even make it into the final version of San Andreas.

Taking itself seriously however is where San Andreas is sure to lose audiences. The film is admittedly over-the-top but that doesn’t count for much when all that »

“San Andreas” continues to showcase Dwayne Johnson as a top tier action hero

28 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

We have more of almost everything at the movies these days, with one glaring exception: we don’t have nearly as many action heroes as we used to. Sure, there are plenty of action films opening with stars or up and comers in leading roles, saving the day, but very few true “action heroes”. One notable modern exception is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a certified A-list star of the action genre. He’s come a long way from just being The Rock, either in wrestling or his first on screen roles, but even removed from that, he’s a charismatic screen presence that holds the action hero title these days with aplomb. This week, he further cements his status with the disaster movie San Andreas. In San Andreas, we get west coast spin on the disaster movie, leaving New York City alone for a moment to focus in on California. »

'San Andreas' TV Spot: You Can't Hide from an Earthquake

8 May 2015 10:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A massive earthquake unlike any ever felt in the U.S. could even impact the East Coast warns a new TV spot for San Andreas. Paul Giamatti reveals that, even though the quake started in California, the entire country will feel it, teasing that there could be massive damage all the way to New York. The footage we've seen so far has only shown how the West Coast has been affected by this disaster, but perhaps we'll see how other areas of the U.S. are handling the earth-shaking occurrence once the movie hits later this month.

Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson, Colton Haynes, Will Yun Lee and Kylie Minogue also star in the movie which opens May 29th.

Final San Andreas Trailer Is Mind-Blowingly Destructive

4 May 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Maybe they should just turn over the Oscar now. The final trailer for Warner Bros.’ upcoming disaster epic San Andreas is so jam-packed with jaw-dropping moments of the California cityscape collapsing in a maelstrom of death and destruction that it could easily serve as an awards reel for the army of visual effects artists involved. Outside of incredible shots like that giant wave riding toward the Golden Gate Bridge, though, it’s unclear whether there will be much of a story on display. Whether or not that matters is even more unclear.

Dwayne Johnson stars in the pic as a helicopter rescue pilot who must work together with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to save their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive earthquake decimates the West Coast. Archie Panjabi, Ioan Gruffudd, Will Yun Lee, Colton Haynes, Paul Giamatti and Kylie Minogue all also star.

Honestly, as gripping as San Andreas looks, »
